    The very first time I rebooted after installing Vista Home Premium SP2
    my Live Messenger application refused to start. Now, after several
    reboots I still will not start. Is this being caused by SP2, or some
    other sort of problem? Nothing new, other than SP2, has been installed
    and it was working fine just before SP2.

    Apparently, SP2 messed with some core files that Messenger needed so
    when I reinstalled Messenger - twice - it finally runs normally.

    I thought it was very interesting. When I re-installed Messenger, three
    or four DLL files were replaced and Messenger started right up. When it
    was not starting, there were no errors shown in the event log, nor were
    there any type of notices in Task Manager that Messenger even TRIED to
    start. The only indication I had was a brief "spinning circle" cursor
    and then ... nothing.
